In an effort to provide you with one-pot dinners we bring you our Low FODMAP One-Pot Salmon with Snap Peas – AND it can be made in less than 30 minutes, which means it qualifies as Quick & Easy as well.
It also happens to be fairly lean and the healthy omega-3 fatty acids in the salmon are a welcomed addition to your diet.
You never know where you are going to find a FODMAPable recipe. I was inspired by a recipe from RealSimple, but I thought it needed more color and texture (I added the red bell pepper) and also a bit more flavor (I added toasted sesame oil as well as optional hot pepper sauce).
One-Pot – Tons of Flavor
You start with a wide skillet (I use a 12-inch/30.5 cm skillet) that has a cover. Rice is par-cooked first, then salmon is placed right on top of the rice and gets its cooking time. Vegetables come last for a few minutes of steaming. Below you can see the steaming in action!
Meanwhile you whisk together a simple sauce, which is spooned over everything right before you serve. Soy sauce, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, brown sugar, scallion greens and freshly grated ginger provide saltiness, sweetness, savoriness and the zip of ginger, all of which go beautifully with the salmon, which becomes incredibly silky with this cooking approach.
Snap Peas Are Low FODMAP
Did you know that 14 g of snap peas are Green Light low FODMAP? That comes to about 4 pods, which is why you can see 12 pods in the images. This recipe for Low FODMAP One-Pot Salmon with Snap Peas preserves their color and crunchy texture – everything you love about them.
Red bell pepper actually has NO FODMAPs, so it was a colorful and suitable choice. Plus, it always goes so well with Asian flavors like those provided by the simple soy sauce based sauce.
